11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Gothic Tombstones on: October 26, 2015 12:39:38 PM
I made a set of tombstones for Halloween!  These are prefab tombstone blanks (paper? cardboard?) from JoAnn that I painted and embellished with a variety of findings.  Several of the ornamental pieces are paper clay molds.







12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A Curious Cabinet of Curiosities on: October 11, 2015 10:53:35 AM
My version of an Apothecary Cabinet done with miniature bits and bobs.  Many of the paper goods, bottles, and labels came from Alpha Stamps.  The cabinet itself is part of a Melissa & Doug toy that I picked up at a thrift shop.  It was originally bright green with stars and hearts all over.  The jar of eyeballs is paper clay balls in yellow-ish resin.

Thanks!  I work more with archetypes than particular deity.  Our Lady of the Waters is the second in a series of elemental/nature-based shrines.  The next one (currently in progress) is based on the archetypes of creation/destruction goddesses from the Neolithic period.

Instead of making three different posts I'm putting all of these together.  This is what I've been working on lately.

Our Lady of the Waters Shrine (thrift store cigar box, old spoon, findings, paper clay)



Face detail


Top detail


Message in a bottle


Octopus Treasures Box
Small wooden box, painted black all over.  Embellished with metal bits and paper clay octopus.
(I didn't show the inside; it's boring)



Frida Shrine
Frida is my #1 inspiration for art and life.  I just saw some of her pieces at a special exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts; my first time seeing her actual work in person.



16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Our Lady of Galaxies Shrine on: April 30, 2015 04:51:15 PM
I've started a making little art dolls and some of them are going into shrines.  This is Our Lady of Galaxies.  She goes Above and Beyond.






The shrine is a painted tray from the local thrift store covered with sparkly paper and (obligatory) glitter glue.  Above and Beyond embellishment is a little lapel pin I got in a $1 bag of random junk from a local shop.

Thanks!  They're really easy to make and the supplies are pretty affordable.  I also purchased some chalkboard paint and a bazillion blank wood cuts in various shapes (top hats, birds, etc) to make my own surfaces.  The most expensive investments are the paint and the pens, so use those prolific coupons with wild abandon if you don't already have those things on hand!  Smiley

Long time no craft.

This is what I've been doing lately.  These are prefab chalkboard clothespin thingies.  I arted on them with chalk markers and gel pens.





I have a lot of potlucks and know a lot of people with various allergies or dietary restrictions.  So this is an easy way to say "this is safe to eat" without having to hover over the food table.

I have more sets planned but I need to study up on some different lettering styles first.

This is a jewelry box covered in wordy washi tape and mounted to a resin frame I found at Michael's.  Inside is a porcelain doll arm, mini spool, bakers twine, buttons, and dresden trim.
